WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME?

What do you see when you look at me
Do you see someone limited, or someone free
All some people can do is just look and stare
Simply because they can’t see my hair

Others think I am controlled and uneducated
They think that I am limited and un-liberated
They are so thankful that they are not me
Because they would like to remain ‘free’

Well free isn’t exactly the word I would’ve used
Describing women who are cheated on and abused
They think that I do not have opinions or voice
They think that being VEILED isn’t my choice
They think that the VEIL makes me look caged
That my father is totally outraged

All they can do is look at me in fear
And in my eye there is a tear
Not because I have been stared at or made fun of
But because people are ignoring The One Above

On the Day of Judgment they will be the fools
Because they were too ashamed
to play by their own rules
Maybe the guys won’t think I am a cutie
But Alhumdulillah, Mashalllah
At least I am filled with more inner beauty

See I have declined from being a guy’s toy
Because I won’t let myself be controlled by a boy
Real men are able to appreciate my mind
And aren’t busy looking at me

VEILED PRINCESS are the ones
really helping the Muslim cause
The role that we play definitely deserves appreciation
I will be recognized because I am smart and bright
And because some people are inspired by my sight

The smart ones are attracted by my tranquility
In the back of their mind they wish they were me
We have the strength to do what we think is right
Even if it means putting up a life long fight

You see we are not controlled by
a mini skirt and tights
We are given only respect
And never treated like dirt

So you see, we are the ones that are free and liberated
We are not the ones that are terrorized and violated
We are the ones that are free and pure

So when people ask you
how you feel about the hood (VEIL)
Just sum it up by saying
‘BABY ITS ALL GOOD…!!!’

P.S. May Allah grant:
every girl,
every sister,
every lady,
every women,
every mother,
every aunt,
every cousin,
every friend,
every grandmother,
every wife,
every daughter, etc

. . .the ability,
the love,
the zeal,
the guidance,
the inspiration,
the motivation,
the encouragment, etc
of donning their beauty with a
Hijab/scarf/
Abaya & a
VEIL…

Aameen. Make the intention…
(say Inshaallah..)

Jazaakumullaahu Ahsanal Jazaa. . .
